If you have teeth that are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing conventional braces, invisalign® may give you a new reason to smile!
Because it is nearly invisible almost no one can tell you are wearing invisalign®, so you can smile more during as well as after your treatment. You can remove invisalign® so you can eat and drink what you like, and studies have shown that it can be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. With no metal or sharp edges, invisalign® is comfortable to wear and does not cause allergies.
The convenience and ease of use have made it the choice of over half a million people, giving hundreds of thousands of people amazing new smiles.
Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, invisalign® uses your dentist’s instructions to create a series of custom made removable mouth trays (aligners).
These aligners apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, causing them to move. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
Invisalign® only works while you wear the aligners. We recommend they are worn full time day and night (min 22–24 hours).
Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, (before moving onto the next in the series), moving your teeth millimetre by millimetre, week by week, until you reach your desired result.
Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average invisalign® treatment is nine to eighteen months. During treatment you should visit us periodically, until it is determined that your treatment is complete.
Once active treatment is complete, there may be some fine tuning to create that perfect smile.
If you feel self-conscious about your crooked teeth, Six Month Smiles® can swiftly and discreetly move them into line.
Many adults are afraid to show off their misaligned teeth but also reluctant to wear very noticeable braces, or they may be concerned that other corrective procedures could be overly expensive or simply take too long.
Our Dentists can provide a safe, swift and affordable orthodontic solution using the smart Six Month Smiles® system. This revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials and innovation uses custom-made tooth coloured brackets and wires to gently align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Six Month Smiles® is a speedier solution to conventional braces as it only focuses on those teeth that show when you smile. It is concerned with the final cosmetic result rather than the adjustment of your ‘bite’.
We take impressions of your teeth so the brackets and wires can be custom-made. When ready, the brackets are securely fixed to your teeth and the wires attached. You will then need to see us at five to six weekly intervals so we can make regular checks and adjustments.
Following treatment, we recommend you wear a retainer to prevent your straighter teeth moving back to their old position.
